Hey. I have been interested in learning Vjing for a while and starting my animation bachelor in college this year I got an introduction to Resolume. We have pretty good computers at our animation department, so I'm going to play around with Arena there before I give up my money and soul to it.
Locally, there isn't too many places to perform, but from previous students I've heard the places here are pretty welcoming for VJ's. Because the town is so ridiculously small it'll be a great place for a beginner, I think. My home town, which has a bigger night life, might be even more welcoming to VJ's - knowing I've never heard of any local VJ's.
Well, my questions are: Keeping in mind this will for me just be an experimental, hobby sort of thing to broaden my experience at campus, how much should I have to spend on equipment as a beginner? Is using the free trial version at dance bar gig a definite bummer?
I'll try to read upon what sort of things I'll need myself, but some tips and recommendations would be fantastic Thanks a lot!! - Anna
ALSO, forgot to add. I only have a Macbook Air - which I read isn't suitable to run the software. Recommend a Macbook Pro or a PC? And how expensive do I have to go to run it smoothly?
